Hollywood gets rude wake-up call from Americans about biased & boring movies at the box office

With movie attendance down big time, movie ticket prices are on the rise… and still Hollywood gets its liberal rant on.

The average cost of a movie ticket increased to $8.93, a 3.7 percent increase over last year’s average of $8.65, the National Alliance of Theater Owners announced this week.

Not that Hollywood has reached pauper territory, with an estimated 1.23 billion movie tickets sold last year, The Wrap reported. But that total is the lowest since 1.24 billion tickets were sold in 1993, when “Jurassic Park” was the top grossing film of the year.

The writing has been on the wall for a while, with the world’s largest cinema chain, AMC Entertainment Holdings Inc., announcing in August a lower-than-expected drop in box-office revenue.

And while services like Netflix, Amazon Video and video-on-demand have made going to the theater a less viable option for folks, brazen left-wing activism seen from many Hollywood A-listers continues to alienate conservative movie goers.

NATO noted that after a record first quarter at the box office, the industry experienced a “disappointing summer last year.

“Summer 2017 was 92 million admissions short of summer 2016. An unusually empty August accounted for half of summer 2017’s shortfall. Q4 2017 was nearly equal to Q4 2016, with 315 million tickets sold, compared to 319 million,” the organization said.

The summer season plummeted to 18-year lows, according to The Wrap. Historic lows were seen on Memorial Day and Labor Day weekends.

Social media users appear to have it figured out, here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:
